    I'm surprised thet Hector's show hasn't a better rating - 4%, same as Nuacht. Does this mean the end of the red-haired ones popularity? (oh please God!)

    We can always pray.

    Interesting that so many of the shows in the top rankings are in English, that said, it seems to be a near equal mix, so good job to TG4. It looks like a pro-Irish initiave that actually works.

    The Celtic league was a big loss to them.
    I used to really enjoy that on Friday evenings

    Also I wish they'd put subtitles in Irish on their English language shows.
    It would be very helpful to learners

    I agree, frighteningly enough. And all the subtitles should only be avilable through teletext - it's insulting to think that no-one understands what's being said when Irish is spoken on it.

    but not everyone has teletext, by not having subtitles broadcast you would be isolating a large sector of the audience.

    Yes, but by not forcing it on people you are avoiding isolating another large sector of the audience - Gaelgeoirí and learners who don't want damn subtitles popping up and distracting them.
    At present, you only have the Nuacht for that.
